You have reached the homepage of David J. Hendry. I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Methodology at the London School of Economics and Political Science. I received my Ph.D. from the Department of Political Science at the University of Illinois. Previously, I was a postdoc at Yale University, where I was affiliated with the Center for the Study of American Politics in the Institution for Social and Policy Studies, and an assistant professor at Aarhus University, where I was affiliated with the Department of Political Science, the Politics and Evolution Lab, and the Interacting Minds Centre. My research is primarily motivated by a desire to understand how social interactions lead to broad social and political changes, employing theoretical perspectives from social and evolutionary psychology, among others. I examine questions concerning racial and ethnic politics, political communication, cultural evolution, social network theory, and statistical methodology, to name a few. My substantive research employs a variety of methodological approaches, combining laboratory, field, and survey experiments, as well as observational and historical studies and computational simulations. In my methodological research, I focus primarily on event history methods.

Here you will find links to my research and teaching pages, as well as my curriculum vitae.
